Sunshine all day

 I love this shirt. When I was younger and would see my grandma wearing it. I would study the patterns all day long until they could no longer hold my attention. I would always take notice of how certain sections reminded me of watermelon. Now I seem to have permanently borrowed it from her and every time she sees me wearing it she reminds me of how she remembers buying it for my aunt when she was 15. I just love clothes with a story.
(shirt- permanently borrowed, pants- h&m, shoes- vintage from little ocean annie)
 Spring break is now over, but my mind still isn't readilly cooperating with this. Mentally I'm still on break, but you know what, that's okay because it keeps me a bit more relaxed. Just as long as I don't slack off, of course. Everything just feels so much better when you're thoroughly trying to enjoy life and be a bit more carefree. Stress just isn't worth it. Instead, ending my day yesterday with cheesecake and great company. Now that's definitely worth it.

Love it! I love a stylish grandma. Mine is, but I don't know if she has many things that are older anymore. I have a few of her vintage scarves and they are love. The quality just seems so much better in well-kept older pieces, don't you think? Today's clothes are overpriced and don't have the same quality.

beautiful blouse! you look chic and extraordinary ;)
